What Is Cryotherapy?

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) The word "Cryotherapy" stems from the Greek words: "cryo" or cold, and "therapeia" or cure. Hence, whole body cryotherapy {WBC) is being studied as a curative and overall beneficial treatment involving skin exposure to extremely low temperatures (below -190°C/ below -310°F).
 
Since the cooling process affects no more than 5% of the body (i.e. the parts that safely endure the variations of temperature), the treatment generally is comfortably endured. These temperatures have potential medicinal and aesthetic benefits. Endocrine System:
 
The extreme cold exposure is believed to cause the body to turn up its metabolic rate in order to produce heat. This effect lasts for 5-8 hours after the procedure, causing the body to 'burn' 500 - 800 calories. After several procedures, the increase in metabolic rate tends to last longer between treatments.
 
Another 'survival reaction' to the extreme temperatures is the release of endorphins (hormones) that have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, and improve mood disorders. WBC has been studied for the successful treatment of medication resistant depressive disorders. Skin:
 
The outer skin is briefly frozen, which is believed to increase production of collagen in deeper layers of the skin, keeping skin looking young and vibrant. Skin vessels and capillaries undergo severe vasoconstriction (to prevent core temperature from dropping), followed by vasodilation after the procedure. Toxins and other stored deposits are flushed out of deeper layers of the skin and blood perfusion is improved after several treatments.
 
The anti-inflammatory properties of WBC may ameliorate chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis and dermatitis. Musculoskeletal System: The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of WBC can improve symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis, as rheumatoid- and osteoarthritis. Athletes utilize WBC to speed recovery injury or exercise-induced muscle damage and to optimize key components of performance.

CRYOTHERAPY IS TRENDING

Advances in the delivery of cryotherapy have led to broad...
 
application of cold as an anesthetic agent for treatment of orthopedic injuries. Whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) is a tool administered with a brief exposure of very cold air in minimal clothing...
 
that is maintained at -185 °C to -192°C, generally for 1.5 minutes  to 3 minutes on the surface of the body in a special temperature controlled chamber to treat symptoms of various diseases...
 
whole-body cryotherapy is usually performed once a day
for 15 days consecutively, although research regarding frequency is sparse.
WBC has been found to decrease skin temperature possibly reducing pain and inflammatory symptoms with fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic lower back pain, osteoarthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Whatever technique used, the main physiologic responses of the human body to cold temperatures consist of changes in the:
 
  • Circulatory system (concentration of blood vessels in the skin followed by their dilation and congestion of the skin) 

 

  • Neuromuscular system (reduction of nerve conduction velocity and muscle tension)

 

  • Endocrine system (increase in adrenocorticotropin concentration, b-endorphins, epinephrine,  and testosterone concentration in men) 

 

  • Immunologic system (increase in cell-mediated and humoral immunity)
 
Studies of physiologic changes after human body exposures to
WBC have shown changes in antioxidant/pro-oxidant balance in
blood, and an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. It is
believed that increased b-endorphin concentration combined with decreased nerve conduction in afferent fibers, which are responsible for pain reception, cause analgesic effect.
 
Such complex reactions of WBC on the human body could have a positive effect on the rate of post injury recovery after conservative AC treatment and reinforce the usefulness of WBC in rehabilitation.
 
Although there has been a growing interest in WBC in rehabilitation,
WBC was first introduced toward the end of the
2000s in a few hospitals in South Korea.

Our Glacier Equipment has Three Pre-configured programs to suit all customer requirements:
  1. A Three-Minute Standard Program that reaches temperatures of -190ºC or -310ºF Without affecting the user’s skin.
  2. A four-minute program that reaches temperatures of -160ºC or -256 ºF for intense recovery (for professional athletes/sports-related injuries/muscle recovery/inflammation/aches/pains) that is only possible in our machine because it does not affect the user’s skin.
  3. A six-minute program that reaches temperature of -140 ºC or -220 ºF for weight-control that enhances fat burning/cellulite/burns calories up to 800, creates a thermogenic effect which enhances the oxidation of the blood to help with weight-control or in other cases fat-loss.
